Now-a-days, tree houses, which are endowed with creature comforts and basic infrastructure, are open for guests by a few resorts and other Nature Retreats. Here, I have prepared a detail about some of the best tree houses in Kerala. To read this detail, you would find the information about the facilities and the staying cost for them.
What is a Tree House all about?
Initially, I want to define a Tree House. It is considered that this structure is constructed atop a tree providing support to its branches of its trunk. By the consideration of some people, a tree house is a structure constructed in the branches of a tree for the kids to play in. At present, an elevate cottage is called a Tree House, which is a temporary or a permanent structure constructed on the top of a tree above the earth level providing the support on its branches or trunk.
Tree House from a Guest Aspect
Offering a nature friendly stay, a tree house would be suitable anybody who is searching for the lodging in the lap of mother nature. A tree house, which has large trunks around it, offer an aerial glimpse of the ambiance, mostly lush greenery of the tropical woods in the charming tourist destination of Kerala. This kind of a house is counted among the places, which offer the very much privacy and the enjoyment of the nature around its guests in enriched exclusivity and serenity. Along with serving the purpose of a cottage and a hotel room, this type of a house is completely a concept, where the tourists take the enjoyment of a stay over the trees and the finest glimpses around them. This amazing house would come to be suitable for the honeymoon couples, who would love to experience the lush greenery and nature to their entire experience of the tour of this charming destination.
Beginning of Tree Houses
Tree houses have been constructed throughout ancient times. Men used to construct a tree house as a casual shelter to retain them far from the wild animals of the woods when they used to live in the woods or near the woods. In the ancient times, the tree houses were only casual structures constructed on the top of the tree, where at least two people could sleep or sit. The size of the those tree houses was very little and endowed with a rope a ladder or a ladder itself to ascend it. In villages, small tree houses were erected for men to take a sleep during the night and take a stay as a security to save the farmland from any type of attack. In case of not having the availability of a tree, people used to construct the elevated outposts to save their fields. A few tribal people at Kuruthankudi use these kinds of houses, which can be found in the Annakulam woods of Munnar in Kerala. Those tree houses were constructed with some wooden sticks available in the woods and covered with rug sacks. In the local language of Malayalam, this tree house is referred to as Erumadam. The Erumadams provided inspiration for all of the tree houses in Kerala.
What to expect from a Tree House
Offered by a few resorts in Kerala, the tree house, right like its name, is an exclusive alternative for accommodation. Munnar and Thekkady, where the Western Ghats and the forest regions are famous and have an abundance of trees to erect tree houses, are the right place to find most of the tree houses. Being very small in size, most of tree houses are right for a couple or maximum 3 adults. The concept of a tree house makes it a variety of alternatives for accommodation. Offering only bare minimum furniture, a tree house has an attached bathroom with its size of a bathroom of Indian Railway Coach. Right to take the enjoyment of the surroundings and take the glimpse around a tree house, a balcony can be found here to be relatively smaller in size. To carry the luggage and for frequent movement in most cases, a Tree House is accessible through a wooden staircase. In spite of having the possibility of not being practical and convenient, rope ladder and other primitive methods might seem to be amusing. Having a constraint space, a tree house has the space sufficient for two adults to walk around. Because of not having sufficient space to dine inside, a tree house is not suitable for hoping for room service in it. During one of my accommodations in a Tree House, I got the chance of visiting the Giant Malabar squirrel, which was lured by an apple at the Teapoy. As he was unable to consider what to do, he ultimately decided to return into the trees. When the lights are on, a wide variety of insects would be seen around. To see so, the guests of a tree house would get annoyed. As insects are a part of the ecology and they cannot be retained far in an environmental sensitive zone, most of the tree house operators put up an ecological notice mentioning this fact. After making sure that all the windows of the tree house are closed, to put the lights on is the best thing. During the stay in a tree house, guests would come across several other aspects, hope the bare minimum, and comprehend that they have encroached the tree and the animals covering them, at the same time, they are still a part of nature, their accommodation would be just great.
